karst topography


a: karst topography ~
b: disolving a stack of sugar cubes


This is a landscape caused by the dissolution of Calcium Carbonate. The Calcium Carbonate is dissolved by slightly acidic water seeping into the ground over a long period of time. This process can be mimicked by creating a block of sugar cubes. Use an eyedropper to slowly drop water onto the cubes. Sugar is very soluble and the cubes will disappear into solution very quickly.

METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
